     That's good, I didn't know that; however, this doesn't help much if
you're talking about firewalls.

     I also think it should work; however, this would mean that the
redirector program would be started at every (or at several) request for
each virtual host. This would probably take the load on the machine
considerably high.

     Miguel Paraz considered running multiple Squids, binding each to a
specific interface. Since a good deal of memory would be shared among the
squid copies, maybe the memory usage would be reasonable. I guess it's
difficult to predict what option is worse :-), memory usage or CPU usage.
Can anyone throw in some estimatives?

See ya,
